Doctoral Candidate

Marlene Sattler has been working as a researcher at Technische Universität Berlin since 2019. As a part of the interdisciplinary EXPERI team, she is doing her PhD on the discourse on people killed in traffic in the wake of the law during the development of Berlin’s mobility law (Berliner Mobilitätsgesetz, MobG).

Marlene Sattler completed her master’s degree in Social and Business Communications at the University of the Arts Berlin with a focus on risk and crisis communication. She wrote her thesis about the non-topic of traffic fatalities in Germany. In 2013, she finished her bachelor’s studies in Communication Design at the College for Technology and Business Berlin. For her first dissertation, she captured different aspects of forensic medicine photographically, documenting how employees cope with the daily confrontation with death. After her bachelor’s studies, she co-founded a communication and design agency of which she was a managing associate until 2016.

This reduction in road deaths can be attributed to various factors.
